Govt. ready for discussion on any issue by Opposition

New Delhi: Minister of State (MoS) for Parliamentary Affairs Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi on Tuesday said the government is ready to discuss each and every issue which the Congress-led Opposition wants in the Budget Session of the Parliament, which starts from today.

“We are ready for discussions and debates on all the issues which the Opposition wants to discuss. Notices have been given from the BJP members as well as the members of the Opposition to the Speaker. We are ready to discuss the JNU issue, Jat reservation issue and others as well,” Naqvi told ANI.

“The weather is pleasant at the moment. We believe that in such a pleasant atmosphere, the discussion in the Parliament would be fruitful. I think this session of Parliament will work in a peaceful manner. There was a unanimous consensus in the all-party meeting that the Budget Session should be constructive. We are very hopeful that this session would go without many disruptions,” he added.

With the Government having expressed no hesitation in discussing the Jawaharlal Nehru University row in Parliament, the nation braces itself as a turbulent Budget Session will begin today during which President Pranab Mukherjee will address a joint sitting of the Lok Sabha and the Rajya Sabha.

During the session, the Rail Budget will be presented on 25th and the General Budget on 29th of February.

The first phase of the Session will come to an end on 16th of March and the second phase will begin from 25th April and conclude on 13th May. (ANI)
